Al wire for a magnetostat i am guessing? Or for a voice coil? Enamel coated or bare? Maybe silver plate Cu, or duralumin Al/Cu would be better? I dont know where to source unfortunately.
Balancing the things I must do, with the things I'd like to do...This is a skill (or a luxury) amongst many that I do not possess.
